The Boeing 787 was travelling from Amritsar and Delhi last Thursday when it experienced more than 10 minutes of turbulence, The Times of India reported. Reports inform that the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was in a turbulence for at least 15 minutes.

The incident, which one of the plane passengers recorded on his mobile phone, caused three injuries and several overhead oxygen masks to be dropped.

It comes after a banking executive was killed after nearly being sucked out of her Southwest Airlines flight window following a midair explosion. The blast shattered a window, killing a passenger, in the first US passenger airline fatality since 2009.

The national carrier Air India was carrying somewhat about 240 passengers from Amritsar to the national capital Delhi, however, the flight soon turned a nightmare for the ones who were traveling with carrier as the airline's window panel fell off. One passenger who was not fastened, also hit her head with the lining of the cabin.

Forty-three-year-old mum Jennifer Riordan was pulled back into the plane by other passengers but died from her injuries.

The video of the incident shared by ANI show how terrified all the passengers were.

It's been nearly a month since the civil aviation ministry came out with the preliminary information memorandum (PIM) on Air India's strategic disinvestment.

She then attends to the window seat passenger - a middle aged woman - and pats the lady's head, which presumably had been assaulted by the window in its mad dash for freedom.

"The inside of a window panel came off", an unnamed passenger told the newspaper.

Sources said there was no damage to the outside window and there was no de-pressurisation.

The Boeing 737 made an emergency landing in Philadelphia at noon local time after leaving NY bound for Dallas. While the injured were attended to by the aircraft's emergency response team, upon landing, they were rushed to the nearest hospital.
